A brush with… Chantal Joffe, a podcast by The Art Newspaper

A brush with…, sponsored by Cork Street Galleries, is the new podcast from The Art Newspaper’s The Week in Art team.

In the series of exclusive, in-depth conversations, host Ben Luke interviews four leading painters about their life and work through their cultural experiences.

In this third episode, the American-born British artist Chantal Joffe discusses the shift in her work from early paintings based on pornography to recent depictions of herself and her daughter; the writers and music that she returns to for inspiration; the museums she regularly visits and the daily rituals of her studio life.

The conversation covers art in-depth, and the inspiration of artists as diverse as Piero della Francesca, Edgar Degas, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Chaim Soutine, Maria Lassnig and David Wojnarowicz.

A brush with… lands every Wednesday throughout the month of August. You can download and subscribe to the podcast here.
